Monster Big Band From Up North and I Mean North!

I received the following email from Swedish bandleader Janne Ersson:-
Jazz Festivals, Clubs and to whom it may concern !
The Janne Ersson Tribute Monster Big Band will tour Europe in 2009. This band plays all music that was played by Buddy Rich & Big Band from 1966-1987.
The band also adds a jazz singer to do a tribute to the great Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr. and Mel Tormé and of course the band plays hits like West Side Story Medley, Porgy & Bess Suite, Channel One Suite and so on. This band is available for booking in 2009 with or without a jazz singer so please get in touch for more info and believe me you will find nothing like this in Europe today.
Janne Ersson Bandleader
